Here are some Frame, Focus and Follow-up suggestions for using this video in a math lesson.
What is Frame, Focus and Follow-up?
Frame: What sort of features do you typically find on a map? How about on a globe? Have you ever seen vertical and horizontal lines on maps or globes? What are they for?
Focus: In this video segment, the CyberSquad is split into two groups, and they are trying to find each other. They have maps on their Skwak pads, but that is not enough. As you watch, notice what they do to make their maps more useful.
Follow Up: What is the shortest distance between two points? If you had to draw a straight line between two points on your paper, how would you do it? How would you make a straight line between two trees in a park?
